C’est juste parfait et le packaging est juste superbe
They sent an email about “sharing my thoughts about this product” while the product hasn’t arrived yet. Usually when buying LEGO the shipments dont take so long, but maybe this is normal for CaDa.
I was skeptical about it at first seeing how affordable it was compared to Lego but I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the set itself and the instructions. Like many others have stated, the only things I dislike(d) about the build are; two lime green coloured pieces that are still visible once the build is completed (one inside the car to the left of the steering wheel, and one in the trunk) and the adhesive on the stickers could be better (take your time when placing them). One more note for people in Canada, prepare to pay customs fees once it's in transit to your location (around 35 bucks if I remember correctly).
Overall, I was incredibly satisfied with the product (especially when compared to the price of Lego) and I will definitely buy the two other cars in the future!
The car and the details are amazing and the fun you have when you build it is indescribable
Placed an order of $350 for this set and the other cars in the Initial D series. Delivery was supposed to take 10 days. It has now been 15 days and I still haven’t received anything.
Buyer beware - I will not be making any purchases again.
Nice build, all pieces accounted for. I purchased a second set for a “Project D” motorized version. Love the motorized flip up head lights! I hope to see more Initial D cars in the series.
Best gift I’ve ever purchased. The packaging was amazing. Definitely recommend.
The build is well thought out and executed. The use of gears and joints is smooth and in a lot of cases better than lego joints. I love the studless exterior finish, it is nice to see the smooth sides of this car with a dead on resemblance to the show car we all love. Any fan of Initial D and building sets will love these CaDa sets. My only wish like many others is that there was no stickers and instead they should have used printed bricks. That would have taken this build over the top. For the price though, this can't be beat. I am still in awe of the differential they put in the AE86, just a genius build quality that is fun to build. CaDa, if you ever decide to offer an upgrade kit of printed bricks to replace the stickers, please let me know, I will be one of the first to buy them.
This is my first purchase that isn't an official Lego set. Also my first purchase from this site.
- It was shipped to Quebec, Canada and took 1 month and 1 week to get to my place.
- Clear instructions for the most part, some can sometimes be confusing
- The box it came with was very well made, the art is amazing!
- Truly a legendary car and a great show piece
- Not sure what happened, but many and my pieces are scuffed or scratched, from the factory it seems. (Seem pictures attached)
- Some pieces were simply just too loose to stay properly in place. For example: the driver seat would always fall over if I had to pick it up and move it around
- The stickers are missing
Overall, I had fun. I'm a little disappointed about the scuffed pieces and the stickers but it is what it is. I'm sure I could reach out to Double-E and they would fix it for me, but I don't feel like waiting a month for a few pieces and stickers to come in the mail and start over the set.
